A focus on promoting individual well-being and independence.

Assist residents with daily living activities (e.g., dressing, bathing, toileting).
Help overcome mobility challenges and physical disabilities, including aid and equipment usage.
Ensure residents’ comfort by making beds, tidying rooms, and handling light cleaning.
